Send Email from Server has incorrect time

Summary

Send Email from Server has incorrect time

Product

FileMaker Server

Version

13

Operating system version

WIndows 2008

Description of the issue

Using the Send Mail [Send via SMTP server] step within a server-side script generates an incorrect time.

When sent from FM Pro, the time offset shows as -0800, which is correct for the sending location in California.

When sent from FM Server, the time offset shows as +0000

The result is that a California recipient of the California-server-generated email, for example, would show the email time as being eight hours earlier than it was actually sent.

Expected result

The CORRECT header generated by the same script running on an FM Pro 13 client, on the same machine as the FM Server:
